"Brazil: Rio, Iguazu  and the Pantanal"

presented by Gregory Kearns


Greg, long-time naturalist, rail and osprey bander/researcher and photographer at Patuxent River Park for the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, spent time in Brazil on an exchange program invitation through Partners of the Americas to consult on parks and environmental issues. He will share these experiences through his always fascinating stories and pictures as he explores Rio de Janeiro, Iguazu Falls (one of the largest waterfalls in the world), and the Pantanal.  Learn about the natural history of the region and see photographs of creatures such as endangered golden lion tamarins, coatimundis, capybaras, marsh deer, caiman, and a great diversity of birds, including the Hyacinth Macaw, Red-legged Seriema, Black-collared Hawk, Guira Cuckoo, and Jabiru, to name a few.

PGAS in the Community

During the month of May, PGAS will be coordinating an Itty Bitty Birdathon.  For a $10 tax-deductible entry fee, your team of 2 to 6 birders of any skill level can count all birds seen (not just heard) anywhere in the county for a single three-hour period.  Enter by May 1 and submit your results by June 11.  View the announcement for more details.

On Saturday, May 14, 10 am-6 pm and on Sunday, May 15, 10 am-5 pm, PGAS will be represented at the Third Annual Greenbelt Green Man Festival.The festival is an event filled with music, drum circles, arts, crafts, and other vendors. Our volunteers will be located at a table outside of the Roosevelt Center in Old Greenbelt.

On Saturday, September 2, we will have a table staffed at Information Day of the 63rd Annual Greenbelt Labor Day Festival. Non-profit organizations spread out under the trees at the Roosevelt Center (the plaza with the newly remodeled Art Deco movie theater thatís at the heart of Old Greenbelt).

Welcome to the home page of the Prince George's Audubon Society (PGAS), a local chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Audubon members in the northern part of Prince George's County, Maryland.  PGAS was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization with officers and a board of directors, all volunteers, elected by the general membership.  Membership in PGAS is obtained through the National Audubon Society.  PGAS members receive our chaper newsletter, The Bluebird, and are encouraged to actively participate in chapter activities including a monthly speaker series, bird walks, field trips, annual bird counts, and other special events. 

This website is for members of PGAS to keep up to date on program and field trip schedules and other chapter activities.  In addition, this website serves as a resource for non-members to find out more about Audubon and PGAS and to explore the benefits of membership.  Non-members are welcome to participate in our meetings and field trips and are free to take advantage of the local birding and environmental information on this website as well as the links to a wide range of related information available on the internet.  Of course, if you live in northern Prince George's County we would love to have you as a PGAS member, and membership information is always available.
